    Thin Client booting problem - EdUbuntu

    Everytime I try to bott my thin client the loading bar screen shows fills a small amount then goes to BusyBox v1.1.3 (initramfs) and a flashing prompt.

    I am using Edubuntu, intially it booted the client and when I logged in it said "Workstation not Authorised" so after digging around i used ltsp-update-sshkeys and then ltsp-update-image, when I rebooted it now does the above. This is really beggining to bug me now as I have ended up re-installing the server 3 times.

    Any ideas?

    Sounds like a hardware compatability problem. What spec is the thinclient?

    There is no driver support in Ubuntu for that graphics chipset AFAIK.

    I have managed to log in using the TC before, the when I restart it loads up the above error. Normally if I reinstall Edubuntu it works, untill I do sshkeys and update image.
